Vijay Sethupathi’s upcoming filmtitled as 96 was launched in the city yesterday with a formal muhurat.
To be helmed by debutant director C. Premkumar, the film brings together the mercurial Vijay Sethupathi, who has had a string of hit films in the past 2-3 years, and Trisha, who has completed more than 15 years in the industry as a heroine, together on screen for the first time in their careers.
S. Nandhagopal of ‘Madras Entertainment’ produces the film whose first-look was revealed in February. Vijay Sethupathi in his trademark beard and Trisha looking radiant in a full-length frock graced the occasion when the muhurat was held.
The commencement of the film’s shoot was apparently delayed by a few months as the crew took a long time in choosing child-artistes to play the younger versions of Vijay Sethupathi and Trisha!
